Lake Lop Nur Test Site

From the series “Largest and Famous Nuclear Test Sites”
Lake Lop Nur Test Site is situated in China on the territory of the dry lake. The firsts tests were made there in October 1964. After this China was recognized as a nuclear-weapon state.

In the course of the years the nearby mountain alpine glaciers were drastically polluted. Until now they are polluted with the nuclear waste. Today scientists commit a huge level of radiation in the ice. If the ice caps of the mountains begin to melt, the nearby soil, surface … Read all

Traditions in China

Shanghai
If you have never visited China before, then Shanghai will surely impress you with its culture of behavior and traditions. For example, it is not customary to turn to a person by name here. Local residents turn to their colleagues by rank and surname at work. They usually call each other by the degree of relationship at home. The words "mister" or "miss" will be acceptable when you turn to a stranger. The traditional Shanghai greeting can be translated as "did you eat?”. Handshakes are not … Read more
Beijing

While walking on suburban areas of the city, local people may approach you with quite an unusual, at first glance, request – they will ask you to take a picture. As a rule, such behavior is typical for travelers who want to memorize their trips, so this national trait looks quite curious and amusing for visitors. It is worth noting that the lenses of cameras of … Read more
